Michael de Kovats informed about the American revolutionary uprising went to Paris to offer his military services to America via Ambassador Benjamin Franklin who was also responsible for seeking French financial and military assistance for the war against the British monarchy. He was given a deed and citizenship and upon arriving in America the Congress of the Thirteen Free States of America gave him the title Colonel-Commander of the Pulaski Legion named after the Polish-born American Revolutionary hero. He was killed in battle two years later at Charleston and became known as the first Hungarian American to die as a Hero of the American Revolution. Another 140 Hungarians fought as Americans in the revolution not including those who might have served with the donated French troops.
